When checking my hubs for various metrics I get the following comments from more than one service or software package.
WARNING: No keywords meta tag was discovered.
NOTICE: Some search engines still utilize the keywords meta tag.
ADVISORY: It is recommended that a keywords meta tag be added.
I also get the following two messages.

ADVISORY: Consider adding an author meta tag.
I imagine that these are things we cannot do ourselves with our hubs. Considering that many in the industry still feel these are relevant and necessary parts of web content production is there any plan for hubpages to impliment these type of things?

And indeed my hub rating, after doing something with my hubs.It may seem like stating the obvious, but I went through all of hubs and put the absolute maximum number of tags that I could before it said "you have too many tags" or whatever it says. When it said that I had too many tags I...

When you view source code for a regular website, you can view their meta name="keywords".Where does the equivalent lie within a hub's source code? I've done a search and can see the meta name="description' which is our summary, but other than our title I can't see it.Anyone with the...
